Two psychology thought-leaders on a mission to make compassion an integral part of business and leadership. The midwife at the helm of metro Atlanta’s first holistic birth center. These are just some of the speakers who will tell their unique stories at LIFE Talks World Congress May 12-13, 2016.

Life University will host the second annual LIFE Talks, a two-day seminar of storytelling and networking that was created to build a tribe of empowering leaders to create social change. LIFE Talks’ goals are for each participant to realize their soul purpose, make a transformational impact on the world, create social change for good and remove the interference to maximize their perfection within.

Ten expert storytellers will grace the LIFE Talks stage to discuss the theme of “A Life of Integrity,” bringing fascinating national discussions to metro Atlanta. LIFE Talks includes thought leaders in business and productivity; physical, mental and spiritual health; compassion and forgiveness; and environmental sustainability, all in the context of living a life of integrity from birth.

From healthier choices to mindful skill sets, LTLCs challenge attendees to be more than just listening ears, but activators of integrity in their own lives.
